Crushed Out (formerly Boom Chick)
We call the sound of Crushed Out 'honky tonk surf rock'. We write original songs inspired by early American rock&roll, surf guitar, and country blues, played with an atomic energy, full of love and awe for the history of rock&roll.

Finding inspiration in the youth’s hope and melancholy, The Lower 48 craft melodies you could swear you have been humming for years. The upstarts braid together nimble lyrics, haunting harmonies, and classic arrangements, resulting in a 60's era blend of pop meets rock & roll.Since the band's founding in January 2009, The Lower 48 has earned a reputation for crafting catchy, yet intelligent folk-rock through a series of haunting performances. "Everywhere To Go" captures the wistful spirit of The Lower 48's live show while showcasing the musicianship of its members.

Getting older is an inevitable fact of life, but how a person responds to the resulting changes determines whether he’s growing up or simply aging. Halsted frontman Ryan Auffenberg is most certainly a member of the former camp, as evidenced by the band’s new album, High Wire And A Heart Of Gold, a gorgeous recording that explores many of the complex and intriguing issues that accompany maturity.
High Wire And A Heart Of Gold—to be released in early 2014, with a single due this fall—is the second record that the Missouri-born, San Francisco-based singer-songwriter has issued as Halsted, a moniker he chose to employ when 2010’s Life Underwater was put together by a group of friends that felt more like a band than a bunch of hired guns. Though the project continues to be directed by Auffenberg (who’s also released a pair of solo albums, Marigolds and Golden Gate Park), his right-hand man is Peter Craft, whose Boxer Studios in San Francisco played host to the recording of High Wire And A Heart Of Gold. As with Life Underwater, Craft drummed, engineered, and coproduced with Auffenberg.
